MLB Rumors

Chris Davis drives in four in win
by Chris Towers |

Orioles first baseman Chris Davis has found his power stroke recently, as he slugged his third home run in five games in a 9-1 win over the Twins Friday.

Weber broke the game open with his fourth inning home run, a grand slam that put the Orioles up fro good. He finished the game 1 for 3 with a walk, two runs scored and four driven in.

Davis' batting average continues to tumble, as he has just three hits over his last five games, but all have gone over the fence, helping his cause. He now has 24 home runs and 67 RBI in 407 at-bats on the season.
